In spite of ICME currently emerging as a new and powerful discipline, coupling of different software tools is still in its infancy and represents a major issue consuming significant effort in terms of time and workforce if a coupling is realized at all.
ICMEg – the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering expert group – aims at developing a global open standard for information exchange between simulation tools for ICME. Once established, such an open standard will significantly facilitate the exchange of data between different tools, as well as to create new opportunities for all stakeholders.
The objective of the 1St International Workshop on Software Solutions for ICME is to outline the concept for such a standard. Read more about the workshop at the M2i website.
